CTF Format
« on: February 15, 2017, 03:00:57 pm »
A couple of years ago I invented a file format called .CTF format - standing for 'control text format'

It is designed to be used for control systems and anything where detail or safety are important

It is based on RTF.... here is an example of the raw data in the file
Code: [Select]
{{ctfxtree}
{treedata '0' 'example 1'}
{treedata '0' 'example 2'}
{treedata '0' 'example 3'}
{treedata '1' '[_info_]'}
{treedata '1' '[_todo_]'}
}

{{ctf '1'}{c3}THIS IS A HEADING
/p {cx}this text is in blue this text is in blue this text is in blue this text is in blue

To understand the format and its purpose fully you can read the help file I made which is at http://futurerave.uk/file/ctf_help.chm  (colour is used in a unique way in CTF and the help explains why, to do with different energy states)

I have not supplied an executable for this as the program is only in a prototype stage. This post is more to gauge anyone's opinions of the file format. It's actually quite a useful thing imo ..... but atm I just use it for basic notes

The help file only takes 5 minutes to understand and read.

just thought i would add, this was not actually a piece of clever design, it was more of a random coincidence, which ended up serving more than one purpose

the way the format came about was...... i wanted to invent a custom text format, just for my own use, for making notes and things. i decided that the format i wanted was 4 colours (key red green blue), strikethrough, and nothing else

the rest of it came later  ;)

Hm interesting, I'll have to study your format thoroughly to understand it, though. I haven't used stuff other than plain text in years.

it's all based around sequences of events, starting cool, peaceful, then becoming alert, then becoming extremely aware and active and capable of moving quickly and taking decisions. Blue -> Green -> Red

in actual life you could also have 3 inch by 6 inch cards in the separate colours to have by your desk for the different segments. this actually helps

so this is an alternative to Markdown Syntax (.md) which for example WIkipedia uses? :)
